, foreign policy and defense reporter for politico. tim, good morning. what do you expect romney to focus on in his speech at the virginia military institute on monday? >> yeah. the virginia military institute speech is going to focus primarily on foreign policy. it's going to be a big, broad speech about what he would do as commander in chief, and you can expect him to go straight to benghazi, to go straight to what he views as the president's inability to kind of take an aggressive foreign policy stance on the global stage. no doubt he is going to mention veterans, and i think he will also see him talk about his plan to raise defense spending. up to 4% of gdp, which is higher than it is even now. >> this is certainly about posturing, about sounding presidential, but how does this compare to president obama's last major foreign policy speech, the one that he maude at the united nations general assembly? >> it's going to be quite different. i mean, the president is probably more conciliatory and mitt romney is going to take a more aggressive tone towards arab states. he is going to ramp u

result. i must note, though, that while the republican budget increases the budget of the defense defendant, it slashes the budget that would have protected these diplomats. >> i might note that the funding that is currently enjoyed by the state department was voted bipartisan, one more democrat voting for the appropriations than republicans. >>neil: they are putting it on all republicans and it ain't flying well with senator graham. you have heard that. what do you think of that? >>guest: as the ranking republican on the foreign operations subcommittee that funds the state department and that is a bunch of garbage. this is about -- you talk about the fiscal cliff being predictable, what is predictable with a lack of security in libya and militias are not dealt with, consulates and embassies will be attacked. we need to get to the real security situation? did people make a request? were they denied? why did susan rice come on national tv and say this was result of the video in did she say that based on intelligence for five days? she said it five days after the attack. she either
. the one thing he ran away from, the $2 billion comment that govern the romney made, the defense spending. he could not explain their medicare plan. he tried to run away from the fact on senior citizens over time. he criticized the stimulus plan, the recovery act, stopping the free-fall of the economy. he looked sheepish when the vice president mentioned brian himself had written a letter asking for the money from the program because he said it would help the wisconsin economy and would create jobs in winter -- in wisconsin. i thought congressman ryan was on the run from start to finish. the one thing he did say and the american people heard clearly tonight is they will not hear the commitment to leave afghanistan in 2014. was one of the only things he made clear tonight. it was a decisive victory. >> style vs. content? how would you judge it? >> i do not know how earnest you are when you are running away from every question you ask. i do not think that is earnest. it looked like a principled debate. in terms of style, joe biden is authentic and real. he is straightforward. he says woody
that test. >>shepard: the attack on the consequence last left the president on the defensive. >> in doubt there is a vulnerability for the president on foreign policy because of what happened in benghazi. that is why mitt romney sees an opening. and our latest polling this month, it shows on the question of who do you trust more to handle foreign policy, the president is leading 52 percent to 41 percent. it was higher for him in september, at 54 percent trusting him more in september. a little bit of a shift in october. the bottom line, again, they feel confident in chicago and the campaign headquarters there, they believe the president has the edge over mitt romney although it has dipped. >>shepard: thank you from the campaign trail. >> political analysts for both sides joining us. the republican campaign consultant is here along with young democrats of america executive director here. thank you, both. >> there is a lot to make of this. romney has come in with a couple of different policies. each foreign policy is different. this is the seventh time he has spoken. the president is very s
to say. we also know that in early august, the defense department published a report saying al qaeda is ascendant throughout the middle-east. you have also got this question of why they didn't have enough security. >> sean: they asked for security and they were denied. there were at least 16 incidents of terror leading up to this, which is why the request should have been granted. but the lying and the coverup and the stonewalling is the big issue. let's look a montage of the white house's evolving story. this is staggering. watch this. >> we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an all of internet video. >> this is under investigation. the unrest around the region has been in response to this video. we were not aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi was planned or imminent. >> it began spontaneously in benghazi. it was a spontaneous... reak to what had just transpired in cairo, as a consequence of the video. >> it is self evident what happened in been ben was a terrorist attack. >> we don't know yet.
